Prep Time



Total Time






box Betty Crocker® SuperMoist® lemon cake mix
cup Gold Medal® all-purpose flour
tablespoon vegetable oil
tablespoons grated lemon peel
tablespoon grated lime peel
tablespoon grated orange peel
Easy Lemon Glaze
cup Betty Crocker® Rich & Creamy lemon frosting
to 4 teaspoons lemon juice
  1. Heat oven to 350°F (325°F for dark or nonstick pan). Lightly grease or spray large cookie sheet. In large bowl, mix biscotti ingredients with spoon until dough forms.
  2. On cookie sheet, shape dough into 14x3-inch rectangle, 1/2 inch thick. Bake 19 to 25 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on cookie sheet on cooling rack 15 minutes.
  3. Cut dough crosswise into 1/2-inch slices. Arrange slices cut side up on cookie sheet. Bake 7 to 8 minutes or until bottoms are light golden brown; turn slices over. Bake 7 to 8 minutes longer or until bottoms are light golden brown. Cool 5 minutes; remove from cookie sheet to cooling rack. Cool completely, about 15 minutes.
  4. In small bowl, mix glaze ingredients until thin enough to drizzle. Drizzle over biscotti. Before stacking biscotti, let stand about 4 hours or until glaze is set. Store loosely covered.

You will need 2 medium to large lemons, 1 large lime and 1 medium orange for the grated peel needed for these fresh-tasting crisp cookies.
Skip the Easy Lemon Glaze, and dip half of each cookie into melted white chocolate or vanilla-flavored candy coating. After dipping cookies, place them on a cooling rack until the chocolate is set.
Try a cup of a hot citrus-flavored tea with these crisp biscotti--and yes, dunking is allowed!
